We were recommended by the jewelery. My wife had assiette polynesienne snd I had Cot'e de bouef followed by a coffee with Creme caramel. Mine was outstanding: the meat more than soft, juicy and full of flavor. My wife's choice including the mousse aux chocolate was averaged. Perhaps I am just the better eater?! I recommend the restaurant which is... More

Very disappointing experience. It was hot and full of smoke. In a shopping mall with no character but serves as passage between two main roads. during the lunch hour the fume from the diesel cars can get very invasive....to say the least. Food wise, the same as the snack joints that we had been trying to avoid. Staff are not... More

Stopped here for lunch on a very hot, humid day. Very nice breeze through the tables because of the layout of the tables in a corridor with openings in three directions. Very good, large salads. Nice selections of beer and wine.

On a wet day in Papeete, we went into Star Studio seeking WiFi, Food and Wine in that order. We had a tasty “Prawns in a Curry Sauce” which was beautifully presented in a half pineapple in the shape of a cup, with Rice. So the meal was good. We had what proved to be a very expensive bottle of... More

Best breakfast in town outside of anything inside a hotel. Coffee , American eggs and bacon, easy menu to read, perfect for a town that doesn't offer a lot of breakfast places Free Wi-Fi located inside a mall for easy access

We had breakfast at the Star Studio out in the courtyard and were pleasantly surprised. The food was plentiful and good and included fresh juice and fruits. A good choice for Breakfast in Papeete!

We primarily stopped here for the free WIFI and had lunch before our flight out. We were pleased that we did. The service was excellent; the portions were huge and quality very good. We stayed a couple of nights in Papeete and wished we would have found this place sooner.

We stopped at this restaurant essentially because of the free wifi, however we also ordered lunch and I'm glad we did. My salad with anchovies was delicious and the portion size was so big I couldn't eat it all. My husband ordered salad with cheese and his was also a large serve and very tasty. Even though the restaurant was... More

Coming back from a 4x4 tour of the island my wife and I wanted to eat something local before returning to our cruise ship and found this restaurant. Although it was semi outside and very hot it didn't prevent us from enjoying a nice meal. My wife had a seafood salad and I had a Mahi mani burger. Succulent and... More
